Fidibo Launches a Re-Branded Persian-Language Boeye eReader in Iran

The Iranian ebook retailer Fidibo has joined the small but not-too-exclusive club of ereader licensees (Kobo, B&N, Tolino, and ArtaTech are also members).

Fidibo launched a new ereader this week, the Fidibook  Hannah F1, a device that quite obviously was designed and built by Chinese company Boeye, or Boyue.

The  Hannah F1 features a Carta E-ink screen, and runs Android on a dual-core 1GHz CPU with 512MB RAM. It ships with 8GB internal storage, a microSD card slot (up to 64GB cards supported), Wifi, and comes with page turn buttons on either side of the screen. Its 6″ screen sports a resolution of 1024 x 758, and it has both a capacitive touchscreen and a frontlight.

The Hannah F1 is supported by an ebookstore that currently has 100,000 titles in Persian, Arabic, English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Dutch, and Portuguese.

It will be sold online and in stores with a retail price of about $130 USD. This puts the Hannah F1 in the same price range as the Kindle Paperwhite, only with a lower resolution screen and a much smaller ebookstore.
